Electrical Failures Diagnosed
with Acoustic Ultrasound
Locating faults in electrical assets is difficult, because it’s needed direct line of sight for visual inspection or other camera related solutions, and being close by that is a constant risk for inspectors. Acoustic Ultrasound can detect failures related to partial discharges in medium and high voltage elements, excessive contamination, mechanical failures and leaks in assets within the areas of generation, transmission and distribution.
